Re: New MacOSX/OSX/macOS build for testing

What does "backup" mean? Is a method that will work in case Sheepshaver cannot? Therefore a replacement? Or only a way to backup files? Admittedly I know little, but it appears that Ronald is saying that it could be possible that the current Sheepshaver works just fine on 10.13.4 (although I have a ...

Re: New MacOSX/OSX/macOS build for testing

Thank you Ronald. Is there any chance that someone is working on how to preserve the classic environment on the 64 bit architecture? I am not sure when my Classic enviroment will be able to work on my machine if I keep updating. I have been cancelling updating for now. When, how will we know that Sh...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

Save the files to a local drive (your App one or your OS 9 one), stuff them with DropStuff, transfer that to the Unix drive, and then under OS X expand them there. If your old files still work on the Unix drive, these will too. The main problem is with creating new files on the Unix drive other tha...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

I think you may have missed my section where I told you to go into the Transfer/Desktop folder to delete the items on the OS 9 desktop. If you did what I suspect you did, there are currently no documents being stored within your OS 9 environment; they're still being written to the Desktop folder in...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

Not sure what you mean "shows up on the desktop". You mean the SS desktop, but there are only the AddedApps and Unix here. Doesn't seem possible to keep Unix and create any other volumes. Although I have tried. Would you be able to provide a screenshot of your OS 9 desktop in SheepShaver? If those ...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

Thanks. I have renamed the images with .dmg extension. I have noticed, because I am really trying to work, that I can open the files on Unix. I am not sure I got them there but they are now opening with MacProjectPro. Although I can open them and manipulate them I cannot save them. This is what rema...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

Third, it's probably a good idea to append .dmg to the end of your MacOS9 and AddedApps disk images, and change your prefs file to reflect the new names. Then you always have the option of just opening the disk images in OS X when SheepShaver isn't running, and you have access to all the files in t...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

I can see there's still confusion. I'll try to break it down further. On your OS X system, you have storage, likely called "Macintosh HD". You can save files on it. On your SheepShaver system, you have storage, likely called MacOS9. You can save files on it. When you run an Application, say, TextEd...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

Adespoton, I can save the file to the virtual disk "Transfer" (which I have created with your direction). I cannot copy it back from the "Transfer" to the OS9 environment and have a working file. It can only live and continue to function (as far as I can tell) within Sheepshaver virtual environment ...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

I think you may be a bit confused about what you're doing when you emulate OS 9. On your physical computer, you run an operating system that ties all the physical parts together and enables you to operate other software. SheepShaver is the equivalent of that physical computer, but written in softwa...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

Based on your prefs file, these are the important lines: disk MacOS9 disk AddedApps cdrom /dev/disk1 extfs /Users/jb/Documents So according to that, you've got a boot disk named MacOS9 (oddly, no filename extension) a secondary disk named AddedApps (again no filename extension) a link to the physic...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

Your setup has two virtual drives in SheepShaver; one for OS 9, one for your other apps. These are where you do all your OS 9 stuff. If you need the file created by your application on the host machine, that's when you use the OS 9 Finder to copy it to the Unix drive so that it's available in the h...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

Easiest is to just save to the internal drive and manually copy the saved files over. If you want something automated, https://macscripter.net/viewtopic.php?id=22923 is a great place to start. When you say save to the "internal drive" what do mean? When you say "manually copy over" how is that done...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

This is normal. You should not be trying to do anything with the Unix volume other than using the Finder to copy files from/to it. Running other software on the guest that writes to the Unix drive will result in this error. So does it make sense to try to delete and reinstall the software just in c...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

1. It may be impossible to make the shared folder work as it did before the upgrade to High Sierra. I suppose it is related to the new file system. 2. The request to initialize a volume could be related to an erroneous entry in the volumes list in preferences. You can have us have a look at your se...

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

I figured out how to eliminate the extra initialization volumes. Then I tried to reinstall MacProjectPro. The first error was that the MacProjectPro help could not be replaced. The second error (when trying to install on the Unix volume) was "cannot install on Unix disk it is damaged" is that normal?

Re: Will not save file due to disk error

The Unix disk is meant as a file transfer mechanism only; reading/writing from/to the disk from any application other than the Finder is buggy and may cause unexpected results. Those results include "disk errors" among other things. To get around this, you can create a Folder Actions AppleScript th...
